Paper Abstract

This paper comprises a review of theoretical concepts needed to describe the effects of atmospheric turbulence on the performance of optical imaging systems and a discussion of techniques by which image resolution can be measured and the theoretical results tested experimentally. A comparison of experimental data with theoretical results will be presented. The close agreement between the measured and calculated image resolution supports the theoretical models.
